People that suffer from debilitating headaches and migraines have a safer, non-invasive option with no negative side effects, for treatment and relief. Getting your Atlas or C1 aligned may be just the treatment to allow you to throw out your pain medications and to get your life back!
When the Atlas or C1, the top bone of the spine, is misaligned, abnormal nerve system transmission results, leading to common health complaints including headaches, migraines, earaches, colds, and chronic pain throughout the body. Misalignment of the Atlas is being linked to hypertension as well.
Upper cervical Chiropractors specializing in the Atlas Orthogonal technique, adjust the Atlas in a very precise and gentle manner.
Atlas Orthogonal chiropractors provide adjustments to properly align the Atlas, also known as the C1 vertebra at the top of the spine just under the skull. This is a key area where the spinal cord and brain stem are significantly impacted by spinal misalignment. Upright MRI studies have shown diminished blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid when the upper cervical spine, particularly the Atlas is out of alignment. The studies show optimization of blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid after an Atlas upper cervical adjustment has been given.
The Atlas bone is the most moveable bone on the spine allowing the head its movement. Weighing only about 2 ounces, the Atlas holds up the head weighting typically 12 to 14 pounds. When the spine is misaligned, it can cause interference in the nervous system. This is caused by physical, chemical, emotional stress. Stressors to the body’s nervous system include unmanaged chronic stress, environment toxins, trauma, caffeine and alcohol, repetitive motion, bodily injuries, poor posture and exhaustion.
